Portadi, which allows team managers to control access to business cloud apps, is officially launching today. The cloud IAM service for teams costs $2 per user per month, and it is free to try for team managers and small teams.
Give control to team managers
Every day, someone in a workplace team somewhere sets up a new account in a random cloud app, perhaps just to test it out. Later, that same service will become the backbone of that team and this person - willingly or not - will be the go-to admin. Login credentials will be passed from one person to another. This is the moment when you as a team manager lose control of what is going on with your ever-growing stack of cloud apps.
Portadi will give you that control back. You will control who has access to which app. More importantly, you will give individuals on your team something they never had - a custom launchpad with all they need for work, from your web analytics to your expense report service.
You use more web apps than you think
The world of cloud apps is vast, not just the popular Twitter, Vimeo, MailChimp, Olark or Zendesk. There are over 200 pre-integrated apps now, but we’re only getting started. You can request an app to be added to Portadi directly from Portadi.
We didn’t stop at pre-integrated web apps. We added custom apps. These are the apps running behind your firewall or things that you host yourself, like your Drupal or some industry-specific web apps or websites.
We’re building Portadi to be useful for individual users too. Each user can define their own apps, perhaps their own online subscriptions, their own Twitter etc. We call these “private apps”. Of course, if you need to give someone a temporary, secure access, you can - without having to show them your login credentails.
Starting with Chrome, Safari next
Oh, one more thing. We are launching with Chrome, but that’s just the beginning. Safari is next.
So go ahead and try Portadi. It’s free to try. And if you love it, let us know.
